Rest A While

A treasure such as this can only be shared and not hoarded. We are blessed so that we might bless others, so the gift I’ve been given I also give to you. I pray you find rest and, perhaps somewhere along the way, a measure of hope.


“And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while:for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat” Mark 3:16


Chaos, voices tumbling and tossing,

like laundry in a dryer, nothing but hot air

blowing and picking up desert sand, 

stinging hot like glowing embers, burning

hot, stinging, like the churning acid in your belly

each heated hammer word smashing,

crashing, crushing concentration,

dam, broken, spilling over, crying, tears?

as you are torn apart

as they stand talking, crowding, asking

pushing buttons and starting the cycle

over, over, over, over again. 



Close your eyes. 

Open them and remember sand. 


Cradling your toes like a rough blanket, 

as the waves caress the shore slowly, 

water retreating into the darkening sky, 

and the wind blowing lightly. 

The island is deserted and loud,

About thefreescribbler

My life is one of words. I am a scribbler, whose thoughts are best expressed through adjectives and phrases and punctuation marks. I would not go so far as to call myself a writer, although many would disagree. I’m characterized more by my unfinished works and half-embodied ideas, scraps of stories and parts of poems. Maybe one day I’ll be a writer, but I’m okay with being a scribbler right now. It fits my personality and style, and best expresses my aims. I’m not trying to create some lofty version of literature. I’m just a kid blogging about life. View all posts by thefreescribbler
